It continues to baffle us why we have yet to see the Honda Grom on our shores. Considering the success of mini bike models from Kawasaki, Rusi, Benelli, or even from Honda’s own history with the Monkey and Mini-Trail, it should be a no-brainer.
For context, the Honda Grom is already being offered in Japan and select US, Europe and Asian markets. The 2020 model features revised front and rear wheel fenders. Honda has also painted both front and rear disc calipers red to serve as a more distinctive accent.
The Grom is powered by a 124cc air-cooled single cylinder fuel-injected engine. It produces 9.8 PS at 7,000 rpm and 11 Nm at 5,250 rpm. It’s paired to a 4-speed transmission.
It’s held up by telescopic forks in front and swing arm in the rear. Despite its size, it rides on 12 inch wheels with 120 mm wide tires in front and 130 mm tires in the rear.
It’s also surprisingly tall with a seat height of 760 mm. Nonetheless, it should be easy to handle, tipping the scales at just 104 kg.
Honda offers the Grom in new colors: Ross White and Matte Axis Grey Metallic.
